She actually ate them. If you watch the movie.
Evil wants to exterminate all life, that's all the motivation that it needs. That's why it's considered "Evil."
Do you remember the scene where he talks to the priest about needing to destroy things in order to create something else, and winds up choking on a cherry?
This isn't a thread about Star Trek.
Thats cool and all, but that was in regards to his own arms industry NOT completely destroying the entire planet said industry is no. Also, presumably himself, he didn't seem at all interested in leaving the planet until the stone thing forced him to.
Just admit it, the bad guys were one dimensional and lacked any logical motivation other than to be the bad guys. That's fine, but lets not pretend that constitutes a master stroke of writing.
This isn't a thread about Star Wars, either.
Actually, it's terrifically hard to name more than a few 'really good' sci-fi movies. Like, good on all elements.
The same can be said for science fiction in general - no science fiction novel or short story is of high literature quality. There has never been a science fiction movie which has won best picture, either.
When you're dealing with science fiction, you're already dealing with material of an inherently lower quality. Complaining about poor acting, writing, or one dimensional characters are irrelevant because that is fundamental to the genre. Science fiction is a cult phenomenon, not suited for either popular culture (outside of childrens' films, in which aesthetic quality is irrelevant) or high culture, and this is one of the main reasons. You compare science fiction with science fiction, not with good films or novels.
Ironically, one has won the Nobel Peace Prize.
I don't think movies or books can win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Well I liked the film.It's obvious it's not meant to be serious, guys, come on!!!
Indeed it is not.
What? I'm sure of one thign about your post
it's a trap!
This movie has only five
There's a Literature prize
You don't read much, do you?
big badda boom!
One of my favourites. Milla Jovovich was way hot in this, and the bandage wrap outfit she wore was kick-ass.
I was talking about Al Gore winning on the strength of An Inconvenient Truth (which is a [bad] sci-fi thriller for anyone who knows the science)
Of course I do. I just read good books, not genre fiction.
I'm not sure if you're serious, but you did make me laugh. I imagine you are also one of those who think that animated movies are only suitable for children(excluding tentacle rape hentai etc).
You've forgotten Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.
Science fiction is better than other literature because it is about what can be.
Blade Runner was a pretty terrible movie and gets more points against it for poor adaptation - Fifth Element did a far better job with its portrayal of the future. It was a really fun movie, not the most serious, but pretty fun.
No love for On the Beach, potentialy the most depressing book I have ever read?
